Winter weddings are so romantic—the crisp air, white snow, and snuggly blankets add romantic vibes that summer weddings can’t. If you’re booked to shoot winter weddings this year, we commend you and can’t wait to see the results. If you have no idea what to wear, we have got you covered. 

To make sure that you look professional but also stay warm, we’ve put together a list of everything you’ll need for winter weddings. Don’t worry, these outfits can be layered so if you move to a warmer reception area, you can adjust your look. Scroll down to shop and put together your perfect winter wedding photographer outfit. 

It’s Definitely Sweater Weather

Warm, fuzzy sweaters are perfect for winter weddings because they can be worn by themselves or as an extra layer. If you’re going from freezing temperatures outside to a heated indoor reception, a sweater will definitely be your layering must-have. Whether you choose a crew neck, a turtle neck, or a v-neck, you’ll surely look put together.

For your winter wedding outfit, you’ll need a pair of pants that will keep you warm and allow you to bend and move around. Here are a few of our favorite pants that are perfectly warm for winter and still easy to move in.

Photobug Tip: 

If you are working a wedding where you’ll need multiple layers to stay warm, you may also want to invest in thermal undergarments or long johns. While they’re not the most exciting thing to shop for, they are crucial for staying warm in cold temperatures.
